Gathright entered the scene this season, and suddenly the Royals just looked different. This team actually has a little bit of speed — Mark Teahen’s a terrific base runner, Tony Peña and Esteban German can run a little — and they have come alive. Before Gathright, the Royals averaged fewer than four runs per game, and they had been held to one run or less 15 times. They had 27 stolen bases in 59 games. They were striking out a bunch and not getting on base at all.

Since Gathright arrived — and yes, it’s only been three weeks, but it’s been so long since Kansas City has had even three good weeks of baseball — the Royals are averaging more than six runs per game. They have stolen 16 bases in 22 games and been caught only three times. David DeJesus is hitting .345. Teahen is hitting .326. Tony Peña is hitting .291. There’s something contagious happening.

Yeah Gathright spreads hitting like bird flu. :-D
If given a really good chance he could get some serious OBP , which means lots of steals.

Royals post game guys today said that they don't belive him to be a good baserunner. Bell doesn't greenlight his players enough IMO.

Only 3 HR and a .143 ISO from a first baseman in 118 AAA PA so far? Nice AVG but he's looking an awful lot like James Loney right now.
